‘Martin was exceptionally gifted intellectually. For all his familiarity with the Christology of the Church, his work does not merely pour old wine into old wineskins. There is something striking, fresh, thought-demanding, about his whole approach.’ — SINCLAIR B. FERGUSON

Book Description

Calvary cast a shadow over the whole of Christ’s ministry. It was, however, in the last hours of his earthly life that he entered into the full consciousness of ‘the cup’ of suffering which he had to drink.

In The Shadow of Calvary Hugh Martin leads us through the awesome events in the garden of Gethsamane and the arrest and the trial of Jesus Christ. These he interprets in the light of the fulfillment of the Scriptures and the subsequent fruit of Christ’s suffering.

Like Martin’s other published writings this volume is profound yet practical, and intended, as Dr John Duncan said of Martin’s work in general, to promote ‘both the doctrine which is according to godliness and the godliness which is according to doctrine’.

It was the opinion of Professor John Murray, that among the ‘galaxy of gifted and devoted ministers of the gospel’ in Scotland during the nineteenth century, ‘none deserves more honour than Hugh Martin. No one could scale higher heights of sanctificed eloquence.’

  1. Jason Bollman

    There is a richness here that I’ve rarely encountered. Depth of teaching that touches the mind, heart, and soul. I cannot recommend this book highly enough to you all. The chapter on “Destroy This Temple” is worth the price of the book alone, and then some. Consider this one the next time you’re making a purchase with Banner, you’ll be very glad you did.

  2. Sam

    Every time I pick up this book I am in awe and tears. The unfolding of the person and work of Christ in this work is illuminating and gripping. Every glimpse of Jesus in the Scriptures truly sanctifies and transforms – and Huge Martin magnifies the Savior in every detail. Therefore, I cannot recommended The Shadow of Calvary highly enough. Although one can acquire this book elsewhere, this edition from Banner is attractive, crisp, and sturdy for constant use. Pick up and read and be blessed!
